National signing day is officially upon us, and USC’s excellent class of 2021 is starting to come into focus.
While the story, as it has been for many years, is about how many recruits USC had lost, poached by Mario Cristobal and the University of Oregon, the Trojans are still adding one of the strongest groups of players they have had in many years, with coach Clay Helton doing his best to keep himself employed for at least a few more seasons.
Ultimately, this class will be defined by the decision of defensive end Korey Foreman, a Corona, California, product who is ranked No. 1 in the class by 247Sports.
Right now, Foreman is projected to go to USC, with LSU right on their heels. For the Trojans, adding a player of Foreman’s caliber would considerably vault this team’s class ranking overall, and would make coach Helton and his team legitimate players for top recruits in future classes.
Here is a look at how USC’s class is officially shaking out, with live updates coming in on Wednesday as the Class of 2021 puts pen to paper to get ready for the upcoming year.
We’re going to mention verbal commitments and official signees. We will apply the label VERBAL or SIGNED to the players below and will update the status once verbal commitments turn into actual signed letters of intent.
